This is probably the biggest museum in San Salvador. Went with family and kids and had a nice time learning about regional culture. You can see all exhibitions in a couple of hours.

A good place to spend an hour or two. Its a pity that the small texts in every display are just in Spanish. A good translation to English would help.

The museum gives visitors an excellent overview of the history of this beautiful nation. It is not a revisionist history; it shows both the achievements and the dark days of the country.

I enjoyed this more than I thought, having been anthropology museums (I get bored easily). Plenty to see and most exhibitions in Spanish and English.

Having been disappointed by many museums in the past, I didn't expect much... But I was pleasantly surprised by this one! When I arrived, at 4pm on a Sunday afternoon, I was the only one there (it felt a bit surreal). As I wandered into...More
